Following a ‘boot launch’ in May in Lancer Court Wellington in Bloom’s initiative to support the Battle of Waterloo 200 commemoration by creating a town full of boots has already gathered support from over 50 businesses and premises in the town. Each one has sponsored a single boot or a pair to create a Walking Trail around Wellington organised by Point 3. Leaflets with details are available from the Tourist Office.
There is, though, still time and incentive for more to appear. Wellington is Bloom’s Chair Isabel Ward said, “Residents and retailers can still plant up their own boots in front gardens and on the street as part of the trail. We will be awarding prizes of £25 to between 5 and 10 entries in September for the ‘Best Boot on Show’.
“To join in the Trail and enter for this ‘Best Boot on Show’ please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your address or location, so that we can come and visit you before our next Wellington in Bloom meeting on 26th September. The winners will be announced soon afterwards.”
